Untitled Tin Whistle Tune

SS020

Although no written score has been found, a tune for tin whistle appears on the Seaton Snook Tape Ballad by Robson Booth (1959) that shares several characteristics of the Northumbrian Smallpipes tunes:

00:00 / 00:30

There are some interesting parallels between the phrase ends of this piece, and those of the the Untitled Air.  

We believe this is Booth playing the tin whistle on the tape, and in one of the more humourous moments on the Tape Ballad, the performance is immediately followed by Michael Cole saying "Yeah... there wasn't much music on the beach", a self-depreciating comment on Booth's rather shrill and sloppy technique.
